Took a look at these last year. They're ok. Very ECCO-like.

Footjoy has a weak lineup compared to the other brands. I think they're having a hard time finding out what they want to do. Do they want to go with street even though they believe in the stability of a classic golf shoe?

Only 5 cleats on the bottom.........looks like cost reduction control.

A lot of pictures of these from PGA Show. I just don't get it. It's one of the ugliest - if not the ugliest - golf shoe ever. It's a complete miss. A smaller company that FJ would go bankrupt by a mistake like this. The amazing thing is that they'll probably sell some of them just because it's FJ.

 

So - they're plain ugly. But FJ also contradict themselves. The company believes in the traditional golf shoe with spikes for stability. They have to get on board the streetrain. It's estimated to be around 25-40% of the shoe market in some areas. That's a lot shoes and a lot of money. FJ can't just sit on the fence.

 

M:Project looks like a desperate attempt to get a piece of the street market and at the same time stand out as different.
